Case of the disappearing images
I recently migrated from Typepad to WordPress. In order to maintain continuity bet. the two installations, Carthik & I, when we did the post & image import into WP, mirrored the same foldername & filepath/structure for WP as I had in TP. Carthik also created mod_rewrite rules that converted old format Typepad permalink names into WP permalinks in order to allow visitors using old links to reach those posts in the WP blog. He also wrote rules regarding my old image files.
I may’ve accidentally wiped out those mod_rewrite rules. So Carthik rewrote them & now the permalinks are working fine.
But all my old images have disappeared. All I see on the pg. are hyperlinks with the filename. To see an example, follow this link:
where you’ll see the hyperlink for this image (& an error msg. if you try to follow it):
I’m guessing that this was the old Typepad filepath. When Carthik set up my WP installation he DID create a tikun_olam/images folder and this image is in that folder. But it won’t display.
It appears that the image is also located at
and this link WILL display the image.
The default image upload filepath I’m currently using is:
Can anyone tell me if there’s a way you can think of to fix this? I don’t know if it requires mod_rewrite rules or something much simpler (which is what I’m hoping).
